Plaque: Dame Margot Fonteyn - WC2
Erection date: 7/6/2016
Dame Margot Fonteyn 1919 - 1991 prima ballerina assoluta lived here in flat 9.
Plaque unveiled by Darcey Bussell. 'Prima Ballerina Assoluta' is a title, normally given by the ballet company, that is rarely conferred, and only to the most outstanding of dancers, Anna Pavlova being another. Some considered Bussell also to be in that league.
